Residents Complain About Flooding On SE 5th Ave.
One Gainesville area is still experiencing some flooding even after being upgraded by the city.
Residents along SE 5th avenue are dealing with some heavy water especially during the rainy season. When it rains, SE 5th avenue collects runoff from SE 9th street and floods the yards of the residents located on the south side of the road.
Public works personnel conducted a site visit last December and constructed a roadside swale to push runoff past the residents and to the creek to the east. But despite the reconstruction, residents are still complaining.
"Everything is coming off the park" said John Peterson Jr., a resident of the area. "It comes right on down and flows on one side."
Peterson also said he hopes the problem is fixed soon.
